My first "real" lapbook is finally finished and has been sent out for proofreading. I'm very excited and relieved that it is finally finished. This is the first lapbook that I have put together to share with others. It is called The Attitude of Gratitude and is the first in a series that I have planned to create to go along with our efforts in habits training. (If you are unfamiliar with the Charlotte Mason method and her teaching on habits training, there are some excellent articles by Catherine Levison on her website. Also, you can check out Sonya Shaffer's book, Laying Down the Rails. She has a sample to download here.) I have created other lapbooks for my children, but they have just been simple mini-books pieced together as we've studied a subject. This lapbook is an entire project pack with lesson plans and study suggestions and is more cohesive than anything that I have previously done. I can't wait for everyone to see it! I plan to have it available for download sometime next week.
Also, if you feel so moved, please be in prayer for Andrew and me as we are expecting an offer from "the publisher" to do the American History lapbook. This is all new to us and we really have no idea what to expect. I don't know if they will have a deadline in mind or how much control they will have over content, etc. We're just praying for wisdom and discernment, that we will clearly hear God's voice in the matter and that Andrew and I will be of one accord in our decision.
It has certainly been an exciting couple of months and I'm really looking forward to seeing what comes next.
